Thanksgiving Day, and up early mid-morning. queenmomcat's stepfather took a break from Thanksgiving preparations to make to us a nice breakfast, and then we went out on the back porch to socialize with the others in our generation and to get out from underfoot. (We offered to help with preparations, but weren't needed: the grownups apparently spent the last several days getting everything lined up.)
Thanksgiving dinner itself was wonderful, with all the usual trimmings, including creamed onions at queenmomcat's and my request. I passed on the Brussels sprouts and took a token bit of succotash, as usual, but everything else was ladled on and devoured. The interesting highlight of the meal was probably the sweet potatoes, which were prepared with chipotle peppers and had quite a good kick to them.
After the meal, I wandered about the house, taking to various people and even watching some football. The evening ended up being another victory for warm socializing, and it looks like it will be another late bedtime. Tomorrow is open, although plans have been mooted for some touristy things. Should be good.
